Holy Trinity

Photo taken today at Holy Trinity Church Buckinghamshire.
I know it's not a very good picture, not my fault, it's....... ok it is mine.
A very nice area around here though.
Thought I'd try and make it look a little watercolourish!!!!

Have fun.

Peter

Re: Holy Trinity

Here is my feeble attempt at an oil painting.

Sorry for the JPG artifacts :-)

Re: Holy Trinity

Wasn't in a very creative mood today, so just combined a few things and came up with this............for what it's worth.

Re: Holy Trinity

Fun photo to work on!

Color adjustments - Shadow Highlight, levels and Smart Blur. This softened the color palette for a watercolor look. Smart Blur eliminated some of the detail which helps for watercolor looks as well.

Made the above result a pattern stamp, grabbed brushes and started pattern painting. Start with low opacities, build up paint and brush effects.I like to add a new layer for each brush I try. I end up with lots of layers, but then I can play with combinations of layers/blending modes etc. to see various results. Some layers end up getting deleted, others duplicated and set to another blending mode. Play, Play, Play! :-)

Re: Holy Trinity

All nice stuff.
Frank not feeble at all.
Alex nice mixture of the two.
Special mention to Steve - calm down now, don't get over excited there.
Swampy very nice, any chance of a little more detail on how?

Peter

Re: Holy Trinity

I agree, very nice stuff here on this thread. It all makes me wish I had a few more productive hours in a day so I could participate more often. Keep up the great work.

Janet

Tried again myself, using ByRo's art history pencil presets.
